Seven staff members developed scabies after exposure to a patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) dementia and hyperkeratotic skin lesions. They were treated and prophylaxis was given to 11 staff members in September 1998. The hospital has had no nosocomial scabies since then despite the admission of 11 patients with AIDS and Norwegian scabies.
